MGM CEO Roger Birnbaum spoke about some of the company's upcoming projects, with the new version of Stephen King's classic first novel among them.

Birnbaum revealed that at least part of the new Carrie will be filmed as "found footage," a la films like Cloverfield and Paranormal Activity.

The mock-doc style, as it's also known, certainly has as many detractors as it does fans. Whatever side of the debate you fall on, however, it's worth noting that King's original book itself provides an opening by which the movie could be shot this way.

King's slender novel (the original hardcover was just 199 pages) is only partially a traditional narrative. The rest of it is made up of interviews, book and newspaper excerpts, police reports and letters, mostly written in the aftermath of Carrie's climactic rampage through her town.
